I have some tenants who have failed to sign the renewed shorthold tenancy agreement that I have signed and issued to them. This involved a rent increase.
They were given 10 weeks’ notice of the contract renewal and agreed to meet me at the property to sign the new contract.
The excuse that I was given on arriving at the pre-arranged time was that everyone was out.
This was obviously not true as I watched one tenant leave ten minutes later.
It’s pretty obvious after all this time that I have a tenant attitude problem to deal with as neither the renewed tenancy deposit nor the signed contract has been returned and all I get is excuses from them.
I do not really wish to roll this over into a periodic tenancy and in any case I do not know how this would relate to the rent increase in the issued contract.
I assume that the tenancy deposit not being signed by them is not a problem as its renewal is formally recorded with the deposit protection people.
But where do I and they stand if they do not sign the contract and return it to me?
What rights do they and I have?
